It will be a rare opportunity for Saskatchewan curling fans to see Canada’s best teams under one roof, and and you have several great options on how to take it all in at the 2018 Home Hardware Canada Cup in Estevan, Sask.

The 2018 Home Hardware Canada Cup, the 14th renewal, is scheduled for Dec. 5-9 at Affinity Place in Estevan, and will feature seven men’s and eight women’s teams battling for their shares of the $140,000 cash purse.

On top of the cash prizes, the winning men’s and women’s teams will be guaranteed of berths in the 2021 Road to the Roar Pre-Trials, which will be the final qualifying event for the 2021 Tim Hortons Roar of the Rings Canadian Curling Trials — the event that will decide Canada’s four-player teams for the 2022 Winter Olympics in Beijing. Additionally, the 2018 Home Hardware Canada Cup champions will qualify for a World Curling Federation World Cup event during the 2019-20 season.

Six men’s and seven women’s teams were invited to play at the 2018 Home Hardware Canada Cup. With new teams being formed for the 2018-19 season, a revised set of Order of Merit standings — which allows new teams to combine the points individual players carried over from former teams — as of May 1 was used to determine the invitees. One more team in each gender will decided in the fall as the top non-qualified teams on the Canadian Team Ranking System as of mid-November will book their tickets to Estevan. A virtual tie for the final qualifying spot in the women’s competition meant one team was added to the field.

Reigning World Women’s champ Jennifer Jones of Winnipeg, who also is the reigning champion Home Hardware Canada Cup, heads the field; also in the field will be 2017 World Women’s champ Rachel Homan of Ottawa, Laura Walker (formerly Crocker; Calgary), Chelsea Carey (Edmonton), Casey Scheidegger (Lethbridge, Alta.), Kerri Einarson (Gimli, Man.) and Winnipeg’s Darcy Robertson.

The six qualified men’s teams include 2018 Tim Hortons Brier champ and World silver-medallist Brad Gushue of St. John’s, 2018 Tim Hortons Brier silver-medallist Brendan Bottcher of Edmonton, 2014 Olympic champ Brad Jacobs of Sault Ste. Marie, Ont., Calgary’s Kevin Koe (winner of the inaugural World Cup event last month in China), defending Home Hardware Canada Cup champ Reid Carruthers of Winnipeg and John Epping of Toronto.

The action won’t just be hot in the stands; the action off the ice in Estevan next year will be just as entertaining, as the rollicking party known as the Patch will be a short walk from the rink at the Wylie Mitchell Building. Along with the opportunity to meet face-to-face with the athletes, the Patch will offer live music, dancing, drinks and food, as well as interactive activities for the entire family.
